Real dogs in a real setting ! See sheep brought from the field to your feet with a single command. Watch dogs work calmly and quietly to whistles - they even work in tandem. During the demo, we'll explain the dynamics of herding and how herding terms work. Our focus is to show how essential these dogs are to running a ranch or farm. Following the demo, participants can choose to feel herding themselves by moving geese through an obstacle course. Then they can try it with a trained dog. At the end, we offer a dog vs. human challenge where the geese are run through course. If you can beat the time of the dog, your admission is free. There is plenty of time for questions. Water is provided onsite.
